Publisher's Summary

PI Angie DeRose strives to find and rescue endangered runaways - work that stands in stark contrast to her own safe, idyllic childhood. But in the wake of her mother's sudden death, Angie makes a life-altering discovery.

Hidden among the mementos in her parents' attic is a photograph of a little girl, with a code and a handwritten message on the back: "May God forgive me." Angie has no idea what it means, and her father claims to know nothing. The lies she unearths will bring her past and present together with terrifying force. And everything she cherishes will be threatened by the repercussions of one long-ago choice - and an enemy who will kill to keep a secret hidden forever.

    "What a shame..."
    Would you try another book from Daniel Palmer and/or Tavia Gilbert?

    Palmer YES! Gilbert NOOOOOOO!


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Literally ANY other narrator.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    So breathy and melodramatic about everything. A simple statement like "He took me to McDonalds" was made with a breathlessness that made the narrator sound like she'd just finished a marathon. All male voices made the characters sound like they were idiots.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment that it probably would have been an entertaining listen if I hadn't been distracted by the bad narration.


    Any additional comments?

    Someone must have told Ms. Gilbert that her breathless delivery of EVERY SINGLE LINE is "riveting". They lied! It really is just irritating and distracting. Please Tavia, just...stop it!

    Excellent start to finish! I am a big fan of Daniel Palmer's writing and this one was a very good read with lots of twists.

    "Great story but overly dramatic delivery"

    Too many exhausting breathless passages for me. I found the delivery distracting. Excellent plot however- so I stayed to the end.

    "Terrible story made worse by over-wrought narrator"

    If you are a fan of trafficking, then this is your book. I don't understand how it was published, let alone picked up for Audible. Don't waste time and credits on this.

    "I ENJOYED THIS IN ONE DAY!"

    I couldn't stop listening! Thank goodness it was my day off and I could listen while I took care of chores. I love the main characters and how their stories intertwine. This is a sticky subject line and Daniel Palmer tackled it so well. I believe this is my first Daniel Palmer book but it definitely won't be my last. I would love to see PI Angie DeRose become a series.

    "Great listen!"

    I loved the storyline. You really feel for the victim and I found myself more cautious with what I allowed my kids to do. Scary world out there.

    "Started out well"

    Too much going on. Very disjointed. Actually, this could have been two separate books. Could have used a good editor

    "Actually a pretty good story line"

    The story and twist ending are great, but truthfully this book could be way shorter. I almost gave up because it just kept dragging it out. Often I would skip minutes ahead. I'd say certainly get a abridged version if you are looking into this.

    "Well done"

    Two or three story lines but all are well developed, if not fully integrated. I very much enjoy Palmer's writing style and he comes up with some interesting and rather unique plots. The narrator is also quite good and I especially enjoyed her young female voice.

    "Not bad, not great."
    Any additional comments?

    The book wasn't terrible, but at times it felt extremely contrived. The narration was good, and some of her voices were great, but most of the time it sounded a bit too dramatic. There were instances where I wasn't even that interested in returning to the book. Like I said, it was in no way a bad book. It just isn't one of my favorites. The suspense also seemed to dissipate at a certain point. Although there were two stories going at once, the second felt like it was drawn out a little too long.
